A nice early antique cloth doll with an amazing brown calico dress. She has a sweet ink drawn face with big round eyes. She has applied black fabric on the back of her head representing hair. She has an hour glass body with a tiny waist. Under her calico dress is a early petticoat and pantaloons. She has sewn on brown polished cotton fabric shoes or boots. Her dress is sewn on and the dress is fragile. The hem either never was done or it has more than likely been cut off to accommodate this doll. If so it was done a very long time ago. One arm on the dress is torn but someone handy with needle and thread could mend it as it seems to be all there. I plunked on the old Shaker bonnet and the red neck ruffle picks up the red touches on the dress. Her arms and legs are attached so she sits nicely. Her body is in good condition. The dress is sewn on so I have taken a picture to show her tiny waist and her wide hips. She is 20" and is circa 1870-90. A sweet doll with an eye popping dress.
